A great climb near Durham, Teeside, north east. This starts just off the A691 in the village of Lanchester. After passing the church on your left, the climb rears up to over 20% as you go around a left hand corner. Getting through this corner will give some relief as the gradient eases off and becomes flat for a brief period at 0.5 miles. However it’s a climb of two halves as the gradient picks up again – not as steep at the bottom, but averaging a good 8-10% for the final half a mile to the top. As you near the top, you will come out of the trees to see great views of the surrounding countryside.
